Decriminalizing Sex Work
The College Democrats at UCSC believe that decriminalizing sex work is a necessary step in de-carceration efforts. Criminalizing sex work disproportionately affects marginalized communities, particularly BIPOC, trans folks, low-income folks, and womxn. Our Santa Cruz leaders need to take charge to protect local sex workers.
Housing and Homelessness
We believe that housing and homelessness are dire local issues that our public officials need to address. Nobody should be homeless, housing is a fundamental human right. As such, this is one of our key election issues going into the 2020 General Election.
